2015 Ford Focus first drive

For 2015, the Focus gets a new look on the front and rear ends along with improvements inside the cabin and under the hood. The biggest change is the optional 123-hp 1.0-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine, which is already available in the subcompact Fiesta. That’s the engine that famously fits inside your carryon luggage, as you’ll recall. In the compact Focus, it comes with six-speed manual only, which is fine by us. You can also opt for the big-block 160-hp 2.0-liter four mated to your choice of five-speed manual or six-speed PowerShift automatic.

In addition to the shapely new hood, grille, headlamps and rear-end treatment, the 2015 Focus gets active grille shutters to tailor radiator airflow to ambient conditions as well as more underbody shields for better airflow management. Combined with fuel-efficient engines that return up to 42 mpg highway (or as low as 23 city), you have a fairly efficient package. Most efficient of course is the 1.0-liter EcoBoost manual — in SFE trim that’ll give you 30 city and that 42 highway.

There’s more standard content on the 2015 Focus: a rearview camera, SYNC AppLink and MyKey, the latter to keep your teen driver in line. Options now include a blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert and a lane-keeping system. Upgrades to the electronic stability control improve transitional handling and there’s a better electric power steering system. There are even cupholders in the doors, simpler controls on the console and a new steering wheel.
